Gentile full of praise for former Juventus captain Chiellini

Italy legend Claudio Gentile says Giorgio Chiellini leaves Juventus as Serie A's best defender.

Chiellini has left Juve for the MLS's Los Angeles FA.

Gentile told Tuttosport: “Perhaps the one who defends the most was Chiellini.

"Today he no longer marks himself as a man, but in the area of the pitch. This is to the advantage of the attackers.

"Then when you see them abroad, they may not even be able to see the goal."
